Supply Chain Graphic of the Week: ATRI Again Finds Top Concerns of US Carriers

No Surprise, Driver Shortage Tops List Again, but Raising Pay not a Popular Solution


Oct. 10, 2018


What are the top concerns of US trucking firms?


The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is back with its annual report, this

year based on survey data from over 2000 truck drivers and carrier managers and executives.


The survey asked respondents to select their top three issues. The issues were then ranked based on the percent of carriers selecting an issue as one of their top three, as shown in the graphic below just for freight carrier responses:

Not surprisingly, the never-ending driver shortage topped the list, as it has for several years.


Interestingly, the survey also asked truckers on how to best address each issue. Not among the top three solutionse for fixing the driver shortage: raising driver pay.
